Anesthetic Options for Oral Surgery

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Anesthetic Options for Oral SurgeryWhen it comes to oral surgeries, anesthetic plays an important role. It is safe and helps relieve the anxiety and discomfort of oral surgery. There are different anesthetic options for oral surgery; some of them include:

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is one of the commonly used anaesthetic in oral surgery. It is used in procedures like fixing dental cavities and tooth decay. Local anesthesia refers to a numbing medication that is injected directly into the affected area. In most cases, it is injected into the gums around the infected tooth. We use local anesthesia in minor oral surgeries like cavity filling that doesn't take up much time. Once applied, you will remain conscious during the procedure but won't feel any discomfort. Instead, you will only feel the pressure applied by dental instruments. In most cases, nitrous oxide is often used alongside local anesthesia. This helps keep you conscious but unable to feel any discomfort.

General Anesthesia

This is a type of anesthesia that uses IV sedatives but produces a more sharp and profound experience. With general anesthesia, you won't have any memory of the actual procedure. This anesthesia is mainly used when performing major surgical procedures. For instance, when you lose a significant number of teeth and want to replace them with dental implants, we will use general anesthesia during the installation process. This anesthesia is adequate over a long period and is ideal for lengthy surgical procedures.

IV Sedation

This type of anesthetic is used in oral surgery. This method involves creating a brief period of sedation during which the surgery occurs. It is relatively more potent than a local anesthetic. However, with this method, you will have very little memory of the actual surgical procedure. Get in touch with us for more information on the anesthetic options available.

This Doctor is a true healer!

I had a wonderful opportunity to see Dr. Bembey! She really knows her stuff! I felt like she had my best interests in mind and she took her time and listened with an open mind and an open heart. I have some really tough dental issues, and she completely understood everything that I was going through and was able to guide me in the right direction. So great full of for her kindness and compassion.
